Deborah A. Lee Summary: Where it all began The Recipe Detail: Where it all began Once long ago in a foreign land called Utah my mom found the following recipe in a magazine. We loved it. But as years went by, we moved several times and the recipe was lost. It wasn’t until we moved to California and to our delight she found the recipe again. It has been a family favorite. I have taught my boys to make it and some of them in turn have made it for their families. It is so delicious!!! Warning: if you are […]

2020.11.04 – Family History Impact on the Present with a Son of Pirates

Seekerz

At one point, the microfilming that remained to be accomplished in Scandinavia was left for me to organize and oversee personally. The first project I had to organize in that area was about six weeks of filming in the Faeroe Islands, a cluster of small islands in the North Atlantic between Norway and Iceland. The logistic problems were such that I had to spend time in Denmark getting things sorted out prior to accompanying a camera operator from Germany to get the project started. While in Denmark I attended a church service in Aarhus. Two ladies came into the row […]

2020.10.28 – The Grumpy Old Man is going to RootsTech

Seekerz

I did it. I registered for RootsTech. Being a Grumpy Old Man, I doubt I would be able to attend RootsTech Live and In Person. Yeah, it is not the same as being there. However, it’s the next best thing and it beats not going at all. I am excited that I can go online. I can click on a subject I am interested in, and then I can click on another topic and not have to RUN to the next venue. Trust me. After 20 years 28 days in the Army running everywhere, my knees love online seminars. There […]

2020.10.21 – Found it! With a Son of Pirates.

Seekerz

I’d like to share a good example of the benefits of having access to vital records on films. Several years ago, as my wife and I were working as volunteers at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, I was struggling with the library’s computer system to locate a town in the Netherlands called Renswoude, where I had learned one of my ancestors, Antje Konink, had been born. I was grumbling, apparently somewhat loudly, at not being to find Renswoude. Behind my back a lady whom I recognized as a native of the Netherlands and one of the […]

2020.10.14 – Travel Expense Savings with a Son of Pirates

Seekerz

During the nearly three years I worked as Supervisor of the European Microfilming Operations, I was constantly aware of and amazed at the millions of U.S. Dollars being spent annually by the Genealogical Society to acquire photographs of millions of pages of records of births, baptisms/confirmations, marriages, deaths and burials of people who had lived many years ago in faraway places. And remember that 1972-1974 U.S. Dollars had considerably more purchasing power than the 2020 U.S. Dollars. On one occasion I asked the Manager of the genealogical Society how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints justified the great […]

2020.10.07 – Microfilms Lost and Found with a Son of Pirates

Seekerz

In 1974 I was working for the Genealogical Society as Supervisor of the European Microfilming Operations. As the archive records were filmed in each European country, they were sent from the filming location to an Emery Air Freight station in that country, and from there air freighted to the Genealogical Society in Salt Lake City. There they were developed, inspected, and processed for cataloging. Following the completion of the work in Vesoul, France, the last batch of films, representing several weeks of work by two camera operators, failed to arrive at the air freight terminal in Paris. Several weeks passed, and plans were begun to re-do the […]

2020.10.04 – Special Report – Liver and Gall Bladder cleanse

Seekerz

We don’t normally include material outside the boundaries of arena of Family History. However, I am aware of several people that have saved themselves from having gall bladder operations, including two of my own family, by using the following cleanse. We are not physicians, and cannot prescribe any medical treatments. If you have any questions, check with your doctor before using. Note that the diet includes grapefruit juice, which has the potential to block the effectiveness of some medications. So check to see if this is true of medications you are currently taking before using, as it will be at […]

2020.09.30 – Genealogical Society Microfilming with a Son of Pirates

Seekerz

In 1969, the Genealogical Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hosted The World Conference on Records. This event brought together people from all over the world who were interested in and responsible for the safety and preservation of archived vital records. The records of primary interest included recordings of births, baptisms and confirmations, marriages, deaths, and burials, as well as probate records and other records helpful to genealogical researchers. The theme of the Conference was “Records Protection in an Uncertain World.” It was held to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee year (75th Anniversary) of the Genealogical Society of […]
